Portadown manager Matthew Tipton has announced the signing of goalkeeper Scott Pengelly from Fleetwood Town.
 
The 18-year-old signed on the dotted line at Shamrock Park after returning home from playing in England, and has impressed while training with the club over the last few weeks.
 
The Northern Ireland youth international was highly sought after, and Tipton was pleased to secure his signature as part of his ongoing squad building for the forthcoming season.
 
"Scott is someone I’ve known for a long time. I always kept tabs on him whilst he was at Fleetwood and once I knew he was home at the end of his contract I got in touch with him," he said.
 
"At 18 he’s still young in terms of goalkeeping but he has the attributes to push on further. I think he offers us not only back up to Ben Pierce but also the ability to push him all the way to make the number one spot competitive going forward."
